Mr. West continues to make heads turn as news of his latest musical partnership has recently been revealed online.
News broke last month that Kanye was in the studio with Jared Leto and the actor’s alternative rock band 30 Seconds to Mars, working on a new track , and now American Songwriter has learned that the superstar will lend his vocals to the song, sans popular pitch control technology Auto-Tune.
While Ye has sang without Auto-Tune on record before – see The College Dropout’s “Spaceship” for example – this is the first time the genre-blurring artist has sang on a rock song.
The track, titled “Hurricane,” which Mr. West also contributed drum sounds to, will be on 30 Seconds to Mars’ next album set to hit stores later this year. – Elan Macini
